Villa Savoye, Poissy

(4.2/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Designed by famed Swiss architects Le Corbusier and his cousin, Pierre Jeanneret, Villa Savoye represents a modern architectural masterpiece open to the public. The Savoye family commissioned the house as a country retreat in 1928, and it was finished in the early 1930s. The home became Corbusier's best-known building from the era, as it exerted an enormous influence on the international modernism architectural movement through its design. During World War II, Nazis sent the family to a concentration camp and used the house for storage. After the war, the French government took ownership; it was designated a historical monument in 1965.

  • We enjoyed the functional side of Interior design with inexpensive materials and volumes, space and large windows that let in the light even if the whole lack of heat

  • The price of the entrance gives right to the guided tour which takes place twice a day, at 11: 00 and 15: 00, we did that of 15 hours with a guide who perfectly explained the architectural details of this work of Le Corbusier. The guide is then stayed in the House to answer the various questions of visitors and children, bravo for his patience and availability. The rest of the staff was also super friendly. A large "I like!". For €8 no reason not to return in modernity and be inspired for its own facilities... Nice that I recommend to insiders than to the merely curious.

  • A great place to visit for architecture fans, which worth the effort for a detour in the outskirts of Paris. Morning visit would be recommended to avoid the tourist flow. The house was reconstructed a few decades ago, but according to the original plans of Le Corbusier.
  • Worth the trip, but make sure to take the bus up the hill!
  • This is a start point in the world's modern architecture and house building !
  • Interesting place
  • Part of the French pilgrimage for all architects. This building represented Corbusier's 5 point manifesto. Easily among the top 5 buildings of the twentieth century in terms of influence to this day.
